And following our first tragedy of whimmitude there follows one different but even more disgusting. The second peice is from a longer entry, an interview of a pal. with an American piece of shit. I leave it to the reader to editorialise further. I emphasised some relevant parts. They would have been obvious to the reader anyway, but I got so sick of the woman below that I felt I could indulge myself with some visible outrage without damage. There are some details of her life at the last entry. There is nothing about the Nigerian girls.
American - How are things there? I see some news but not too much.
Palestinian - Here the situation is very difficult and hard.
American - Yes
Palestinian - There is a big closure.
American - I am just reading about EU cutting funding to Palestine and all the borders?
Palestinian - Yes
American - That is bad. No food in and no produce out to sell to get money.
Palestinian - All borders are closed. No fundraising, no economy and no way to live.
American - I guess no medicines either?
Palestinian - Nothing here.
American - Yes
Palestinian - We are just dead people. Of course, no medicines also.
American - Who gets paid now?
Palestinian - Just UNRWA employers get paid.
American - Yes
Palestinian - Governmental employees are not paid.
American - No body else is what I read. I wish things were very different in both of our nations. I see Olmert is set to have his way about the borders also Kadima party often told the Likud coalition negotiating team that Kadima plans to implement its convergence plan to uproot dozens of Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria by 2008. He will be doing it before new elections here so Bush must be in agreement.
Palestinian - aha
American - Perhaps he fears waiting until we have a new president.
Palestinian - I believe there will be hardship, difficulty and no progress in the peace process.
American - I wish many things but I think you are right. Israel will take the land and water she wants and no one will stop her now.
Palestinian - Palestinians and Israelis will both suffer a lot.
American - If she can kill off Palestinians or make them leave running for their lives he will take all of the land. Yes?
Palestinian - There will be too much resistance and no one can live without water, so they will fight and do their best to live.
American - Both will suffer and both will fight. And the settlers he plans to move will be fighting also.
Palestinian - Sure.
American - Everyone wants Palestine I guess.
Palestinian - Of course, we want Palestine for us.
American - It will be a mess for years more.
Palestinian - Of course
American - And you should have Palestine - at the least you should have back to the pre 1967 borders.
Palestinian - Palestine is Palestine
American - It seems always it is Palestine who suffers and is robbed of more and more. I hate that my nation here has any part in that.
Palestinian - So giving them up to 1967 borders is too impossible to leave?
American - They now have about 1/4 of a million Jews living in the West Bank.
Palestinian - aha
American - They have built their land grab wall. How can you undo all that?
Palestinian - By Jihad we will be able to get them out.
American - I don't really think so, but I wish you well in trying.
Palestinian - By peace Israeli will not get out or leave.
American - It is as always Palestine who will starve and suffer the most and die the most. There is no way to get all Israel out of the West Bank unless other nations will stand with Palestine. Then it could be done without war.
Palestinian - I am not sure but hope so that it happens without war.
American - It is preferable.
Palestinian - ya
American - But who will stand with Palestine? Even the other Arabs and Muslims have not done that.
Palestinian - No one. No Arab nations, no EU, no America.
American - I know and they are all wrong. But how can it be changed? Who will stand with Palestine... or if necessary fight alongside Palestine?
Palestinian - We have to convince the peoples not the nations.
American - I think you are right. The nations follow America who follows Israel.
Palestinian - Yes and to convince the people not the governments.
American - But how? Is it possible?
Palestinian - I think it's not easy but possible. Why not?
Genevieve Cora Fraser is a poet, playwright and journalist as well as a long-standing environmental and human rights activist living in Massachusetts.
Genevieve Cora Fraser was born in Massachusetts in 1945 and moved to a small farming community in New Hampshire as a child. She is a playwright, director, poet, historian and journalist and attended the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in the late 1960s where she met Salim Tamari director of the Institute for Jerusalem Studies (an institution affiliated with the Institute for Palestine Studies), and an associate professor of sociology at Birzeit University. It was through her friendship with Tamari that she first was drawn to the Palestinian issue.
Fraser left college during the height of the Viet-Nam War to work at the local Public Broadcasting System NHN-TV and later served as editor of the Today Paper of Greater Lawrence (MA). She returned to UNH, graduating in Theater and Communications in 1979 and received an MFA in Theater Playwriting in 1981 from Brandeis University. She has been a long-standing environmental and human rights activist. In the 1970s she was active with the NAACP, helping to organize inner city black youth coalitions. In the 1980s she received an Environmental Commendation as an activist and organizer of the Massachusetts Acid Rain Awareness Weeks, wrote the Literacy Study for Northern Worcester County, and developed a major exhibit, "Native Americans in Harmony with Nature." In the 1990s, she served as coordinator of the Northern Tier Transportation Initiative which resulted in the development of a public bus system spanning two counties in rural Massachusetts. Fraser is also politically active and served as an aide for a state senator for five years and is currently the artistic director of the Drama Circle, a venue for original works for the stage and screen. Submissions of plays, poems, short stories and screenplays involving the Palestinian/Israeli conflict are welcome. Readings will be televised and shown locally.http://www.corkpsc.org/piwp
